Issue with Language Switcher

Post by cathy1967 » Sun Sep 26, 2021 4:46 pm

I'm currently working on a site, that was 'born' as a Danish site, but now needs an English version as well. I have followed the entire guideline of how to set up a multilingual site and so far everything is working apart from one thing.

I cannot get the default page in the Danish version to switch over to Danish (it's stuck on All) and therefore, I cannot get the language switcher to display the Danish.

The Multilingual status shows me this:

Warning This site is set as a multilingual site. The menu module displaying the Home menu item set to language "All" should not be published.

Warning This site is set as a multilingual site. One or more of the Default Home pages for the published Content languages are missing although the Language Filter plugin is enabled AND/OR one or more Language Switcher modules are published.


The problem remains that I cannot change the language to Danish on that menu item, that previously acted as the default homepage.

When I try to change from All to Danish, it tells me this:

Error
Save failed with the following error: The Language parameter for this menu item must be set to 'All'. At least one Default menu item must have Language set to All, even if the site is multilingual.


According to the guide, the danish 'default page' should be able to have its language changed to Danish. Or did I misread something there?

What do I do?

How do you mean 'its stuck on All'?

You shall have 3 menus i.e All, English and Danish. Create a new menu for Danish and set an item as Default for Danish. It will be marked with a Danish flag.

Ah, now I get it. I didn't realize there had to be a third menu. Now it works. Thanks.
